Honestly, who doesn’t want the summer of 2022 to finally arrive? The Pandemic getting longer and longer, a big international crisis and the future just seems so uncertain right now. What will the future hold, how will our summers look like? We can definitely all agree, that everyone will need a big portion of relaxation this summer break. The best cure for stress is and has always been, nature. Being surrounded by greenery, by living plants and organisms, with the occasional free-living animal, pure delight. In combination with physical activities, mild to more advanced, the soul will feel immediately refreshed. For you to avoid jetting off to Majorca, as so many others already do (Lufthansa is taking Jumbo Jets into service again, to transport masses of peoples to this Spanish island, insane!), I have another great destination tip for you! What about the french alps in summer? A classic destination for winter sports, the french alps are also recommended during the warm months of the year. Find here below 10 reasons to visit the french alps this summer! Maybe more than one reason will speak to you? Let me know in the comments below!
Why you should visit the french alps in the summer season
Méribel in the Les Trois Vallées in southeastern France is a microcosm of all the best the mountains have to offer. The focus of the 10 reasons will be on Meribel, which is usually known for french alps skiing in Winter. But is also a great destination in summer. As per the following reasons:
1° EXPLORE THE VALLEY’S STUNNING WALKING PATHS
2° CHALLENGE YOURSELF ON COL DE LA LOZE
3° HURTLE DOWN THE SLOPES OF AN IMMENSE MOUNTAIN BIKE AREA
4° ENJOY UNIQUE FAMILY TIME TOGETHER
5° GET (BACK) INTO SPORT: RIDING, GOLF, VIA FERRATA…
6° TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
7° BECOME AN ADVENTURER IN THE NATURE RESERVE
8° INDULGE YOURSELF
9° IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE VALLEY’S HISTORY
10° ENJOY A PACKED CALENDAR OF SPECIAL EVENTS
If those reasons aren’t enough yet, the resort of Meribel also offers themed fortnights throughout the summer, for an unforgettable stay. A lot is still uncertain with the pandemic this summer, but those usually are E-bike Experience, Méribel in the Sky, Art & Authentic and Zen Altitude.
And in case you are still uncertain about your visit to the resort this summer, there are two covid test stations in the city, at Méribel’s Parc Olympique as well as the Moutiers test centre. Hopefully, allow you safe holidays in 2022!
